Holiday Gift Guide: Rodan + Fields Beauty Products

Rodan and Fields Dermatologists

Rodan + Fields: Their mission is to connect people with the products, the knowledge, the resources, and the opportunities to change skin and to change lives.

Rodan + Fields is a high end dermatology product. They are so much better than your basic Avon or department store brand. The company was founded by world-renowned dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, the creators of Proactiv® Solution. These ladies really know their stuff. Their products make it possible for you to get real, beautifying results at home, without injections or procedures.

A sweet friend of mine, Christy Crummy, is an independent consultant for Rodan + Fields and her beautiful skin is a testament to the results of their products. I trust her, and I have tried out many of their items, and I can say that they work!

I have used the lip shield every night for a month and my lips feel better than ever! I used to be addicted to Chapstick, but since learning that Chapstick actually strips your lips of layers of skin, I have been trying to avoid it. I tried using "natural" lip products like Burt's Bees and the EOS line; however, my lips still dried out and needed moisturized several times during the day. I am very pleased to say that with the Rodan + Fields Essentials Lip Shield I no longer need daily moisturizing; just once at night! I am no longer a Chapstick addict. The Lip Shield is also a great sunscreen for your lips, so that is an added bonus to me.

Another great item I tested was the foaming sunless tanner. I must say I was skeptical. I have a natural red tint to my hair and I have very pale skin. Needless to say, I don't tan. And I don't want to look orange. So I have stayed away from most sunless tanners. They usually smell bad, are a mess, and make you look a strange orange shade. I wasn't expecting much different from this Rodan + Fields product. I was pleasantly surprised. The tanner is actually a foam; it is lightweight and clear, not messy at all. And it smells nice! I am such a sucker for a nice scent.

The color doesn't appear for a few hours so you should apply it the night before you plan to bare skin. I would also recommend you apply this after you shower at night because you don’t want to bather soon after application. This tanner contains RF-Dcell technology, which extends the duration of your sunless tan. It also contains vitamins A, C, and E which defend your skin against free radical damage. The great thing about Rodan + Fields products is that they don't just make you look beautiful; they actually improve the health of your skin! And for those of you who are curios, here is a photo of my leg where I skipped some areas so you could see the color difference. 

Lastly was the Micro-Dermabrasion Paste which comes in convenient packets. This is an oil free formula that exfoliates, smoothes, and evens out skin tones. You can apply this paste to dry skin for an extreme exfoliation, or use on damp skin for a gentler scrub. I prefer using it on damp skin because my skin is prone to dryness and flaking. This product really does promote smoothe skin!

You can try Rodan +Fields for yourself today by contacting Christy via email  or by visiting her website . However, one lucky winner will receive one Redefine Eye Cream, valued at $60 and one Foaming Sunless Tanner, a $24! Enter below to win.

  1. I definitely need some sunless tanner in my life!! I'm made about as pale as pale gets and I don't tan in tanning beds, so the white is so bright right now that I'm pretty sure that I could glow in the dark!!

  2. I'd love to win the sunless tanner for myself since I have fair skin, and the eye cream for my sister-in-law. Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  3. I would use it for Christmas eve

  4. I'm using it for a holiday dinner party with coworkers!
